Children’s Literature and Adult Literacy

Children’s Literature and Adult Literacy

 

Terry Farish and interpreter Nilhari BhandariFor five year it has been my great joy, and challenge, to direct the adult literacy program of the New Hampshire Humanities Council. The NH Humanities Council Newsletter features an article  I wrote on bringing children’s literature to adults learning English.  I wrote about our work with adult students and the goal of the book discussion program that is the cornerstone of our literacy work.  The  article is a reflection on bringing children’s literature to adults.  As of  July, I am not longer on the staff of the Humanities Council but I support the ongoing work   and cheer on my colleague every day.
